After world war 2, the Bergwerksverband GmbH (mining association) began setting up experimental facilities for the production of purest carbon and activated carbon. Thanks to many years of experimenting, it proved possible to produce very high quality activated carbon from hard coal. In 1955, a large-scale pilot plant was erected on the site of the former Queen Elisabeth coalmine in Essen and on February 29th, 1956, it was put into operation. This was the beginning of the company history of CarboTech AC GmbH.
